can I put 33's on my stock 04 rubicon?

I was wondering if I can do it prior to lifting it as long as I don't do any off roading?

I'd say no you can't. You'll still hit bumps on the road hard enough to hit the fenders. Or just drive crazy slow lol

You can put 33s on your Rubi if you do it like this...

Wheel. Break/Test. Repair/Upgrade. Repeat

Hah GREAT photo. I hope you don't mind me stealing/copying that photo for use in similar future threads.

Fkurzat, the above advice that 33" tires are too big for an unlifted Wrangler is correct. 31x10.50 is the largest tire that can be installed on a stock unlifted Wrangler TJ or Rubicon. Even that size will usually rub a tad when the steering wheel is turned all the way to the stops.
When you have a choice, buy American.
